  • Axillary Lymph Node Dissection

  • If cancer is known to be present in the lymph nodes or is found in the sentinel node, then your surgeon may remove additional lymph nodes. Evaluating the remaining lymph nodes for disease helps physicians determine the best course of treatment, including whether chemotherapy or radiation therapy is needed.
